Re: [Histonet] Knife maker

From:Geoff McAuliffe

The LKB knifemaker is a great tool. In my experience poor quality knives 
are due to the machine being out of adjustment. The scoring pressure 
could be too low (or too high),  you might need a new scoring wheel or 
the clamping head may be applying insufficient pressure. Also, the score 
may not be in the proper position for a good break.. Find the 
instructions (a fold-up laminated sheet that fits in a slot under the 
machine), get a glass strip and take an hour to figure out what the 
problem is. I would be surprised if the instrument was beyond repair.
